The ArchiTeam Work Health & Safety (WHS) Pack has been compiled as a tool for members to use within their practices and to provide the supplementary information needed to submit for preferred suppliers lists and tender/RFI submissions to councils and government. The WHS Pack can also be used to express a practices’ health and safety expectations and assists the practice to achieve better health & safety results.
We understand that WHS systems may take time to implement within a practice but it can be critical in the management of risks to the health and safety of everyone in your workplace, regardless of the risk. Therefore, the ArchiTeam WHS pack provides a starting template to enable members to begin or develop their WHS protocols.
The ArchiTeam WHS Pack consists of the following components:
The System Pack includes an introduction to the various components within the WHS pack, as well as a contents list of all the available documents. It is suggested that members refer to the System Pack as a guideline prior to the other packs.
The Forms Pack includes an extensive number of forms to record information, manage safety obligations, provide information, instruction & training to works and enable the practice to demonstrate to third parties the steps taken to establish, operate and maintain a safe and healthy workplace. Members will need to use discretion as to which forms are appropriate and relevant for their particular office and staffing situation. Forms are provided as Word documents allowing members to edit as required.
The Tools Pack includes relevant Acts and Regulations for each individual state in Australia. It also includes relevant Codes and Standards. Again, member discretion is required to review which documents are relevant for individual practices and the practices requirements for applications and submissions onto preferred suppliers lists and tenders/RFI’s.
We hope this provides a good starting point for your practice.
